2020 Father Martin Golf Outing – August 26

Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at Emeis Golf Course

With the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus, this year’s event will be a golf outing only.

This event honors Father Ken Martin, an avid golfer and special friend. Upon his death, he left $1,000 for his golfing buddies to have an outing, and they decided to honor “Father Kenny” by creating this annual event.

Through the years this outing has raised over $300,000 to benefit Scott County K-12 Catholic school students through emergency scholarship grants. Your donation will help children to continue their Catholic school education in spite of their family’s current financial crisis.

Please join us for this charity event! SIGN UP EARLY as space is limited for this event! Based upon past successes, the slots will fill early. DOWNLOAD and mail in the registration form here.

RESERVATIONS include golf, cart, prizes, and refreshments on the course.

FOR SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION contact Andy Craig at andy.craig@assumptionhigh.org or 563-326-5313 Ext. 225.

2020 Century Club Membership and Steak Fry

Dear Assumption Family and Friends,

We would like to invite you to become a member of this year’s Assumption Century Club. Under normal circumstances, we would be announcing and inviting you to our Annual Steak Fry and Coach’s Program, however, for just this year we have had to change plans due to COVID 19 to ensure everyone’s health and safety. With that in mind, the Century Club has decided to change things up for just this year.

We will be having a Burger Basket pick-up or Stop, Eat and Chat event on August 21, 2020, from 6-8 p.m. Given the format for this year, there will be no Coach’s Program. We hope everyone understands and will either drive thru and pick-up a burger basket or stop, eat and chat.

We will have masks and hand sanitizer available for those who stop, eat and chat. We need your support this year more than ever. We will also be passing out a special AHS gift for all those attending as a thank you from the Century Club.

This event is free to all Century Club members. This event has been a great Assumption tradition for over thirty (30) years and a fun way to kick off the upcoming seasons for all sports programs.

The Century Club’s sole mission is to provide financial assistance to the AHS girls’ and boys’ athletic programs. Each year the Century Club helps support all of our team sports by funding new equipment, special projects and facility improvements. Last year alone the Century Club provided in excess of $10,000.00 in financial assistance to Assumption’s Athletic Programs.

Our AHS Athletic Programs enjoyed continued success this past 2019-2020 school year. We had the girls volleyball and basketball teams make it to the State Tournament. Last summer the softball team won its third straight State Championship and the baseball team qualified for the State tournament. In addition, as of this writing the baseball team just clinched another MAC conference title! Numerous other AHS programs and individual athletes had outstanding seasons this past year. Your membership dues directly assist our athletes with accomplishing these amazing achievements.

PLEASE CONSIDER BECOMING A CENTURY CLUB MEMBER. The “Century” in our name signifies the amount of the annual dues – $100.00. However, a growing number of AHS supporters are choosing to become “Gold Members” for $200.00. Membership dues are TAX DEDUCTIBLE*.

We strive to have a broad base of support across the AHS community, so either amount is greatly appreciated. To become a member of the Century Club, we ask that you complete the attached CENTURY CLUB MEMBERSHIP FORM and return the completed form, along with your dues, to: Assumption High School, Attention: Century Club, 1020 West Central Park Avenue, Davenport, Iowa 52804. Checks should be made payable to “AHS Century Club”. If you have a student, you can elect to pay your dues as part of your school registration. Please see Membership Form for online payment option (convenience fee charged) as well!

Thank you for your support of our strong athletic tradition at Assumption!

AHS Golf Outing – August 7, 2020

Support Schools Choice Now Act! Contact your Representative Today!

Please take a moment to contact your Members of Congress to ask that they support the School Choice Now Act and insert the legislation into the next COVID relief bill.

We believe public and private school students must be given the resources for success and are therefore asking Congress to set aside 10 percent of any new COVID-19 education funding for emergency grants to low- and middle-income private school families. This percentage is consistent with the overall population of K-12 students educated in private schools.

And with continued uncertainty ahead, Congress should pair these one-time emergency grants with a comprehensive federal tax credit that will generate new education funds for children long term.

The pandemic has seriously impacted public and private school children equally. But thousands of private schools are now in danger of closing if Congress doesn’t act.

If that happens, it will be a tragedy for children, families and communities. It will also be financially devastating to school districts who would have to absorb hundreds of thousands, if not more than million, private school students. This will cost taxpayers billions of dollars.

Our nonpublic schools and the families they serve should be included in the COVID-19 relief legislation. Make your voice heard by contacting your Congressional members today. Thank you for your advocacy!

Congress must ensure the education of ALL children this fall. Click the link to log in and send your message: https://actnow.io/D0aEwC8

As always, we encourage you to include your personal story in the message to your legislators, as well.
